The family of a murdered Fife man have released an emotional tribute amid renewed appeals for information.
Darren Adie was found unconscious on Tweed Avenue, Kirkcaldy, at around 6:45pm on Saturday.
He was taken to Victoria Hospital but later died.
In a statement, his family said: “Darren was a much loved son, brother and father who will be sorely missed.
“We are grateful for the support of our friends and family and would ask for privacy from the media to come to terms with our loss.”
Inquiries so far have established that there were people in Tweed Avenue and on other streets in the Gallatown area of Kirkcaldy around the time of the incident which led to Darren’s death. Police are appealing for anyone who may have information that can assist in the investigation to come forward.
Detective Chief Inspector Raymond Brown, of Police Scotland’s Major Investigation Team, said: “I want to thank the community for their cooperation and assistance so far.
“Darren was well known in the Gallatown area and I’m keen to speak to anyone who may have seen him on Saturday in the hours before he died.
“I would also ask anyone who was in the Gallatown area on Saturday and who may have seen something unusual or anyone acting suspiciously to please get in touch with us.”
Anyone with information can contact officers in the street, by telephoning 101 or anonymously via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
